I plan to do the same for Noatun. KFMI is only good for one file at a time but 
unsuitable when recreating a KFMI-object every few msecs.

Why not kdemultimedia, what to do with my tagreader-plugin then, I guess I'd 
have to put it into etragear too then.
Actually I think taglib does not fit into any module at all because it's not 
depending on KDE in any way.
Why not put it into kdesupport and make releases from there regularly and 
independent of any kde release schedule, after all it's a support-library and 
no extra-application?

You guys are too slow, it's still not in KDE CVS ;))
